its a shame that people needed the ARCHIVE to get into Kimock. hopefully everybody knows now.

This is absolutley the best quality SKB show i have ever heard! GET IT NOW!
Reviewer: Defunct - - September 30, 2006
Subject: So absurdly amazing you might explode
This is by far the best SKB concert that I have ever heard. I listned to these on my $220 Beyerdynamic DT 770 Professional headphones. If you have a pair of headphones that are under $100 then get something better. Can't experience Kimock without quality listening gear.

Subject: Best Sound
The only way you could get better sound at this show would be to stick the mic up Steve Kimocks anus.
Reviewer: YossarianHunter - - April 5, 2006
Subject: Unbelievable!!!!
I put on the senn. headphones and left to take the dog for a walk. 2 minutes into High and Lonesome, I stopped moving. 45 minutes later, i was still standing there. This recording is a beautiful example of why we collect/listen to music. If you can't dig on this one, you must have a hole in your soul. Thanx Charlie, and thanx SKB.
Reviewer: Makisupa McGee - - March 30, 2006
Subject: Uhhh....soooo sick
This show is so sick that i fell ill while listening to it. And it'l be a while before I recover from this one, if ever.

If you do not like this, then it is likely that you do not like anything...in the world.

Music should not be allowed to be this super sic because it makes all other aspects of life seem trite and mundane.

Unique Setlist.
Did Zero ever go through any strictly instrumental phases? I know kvhw was at one point purely instrumental, does anyone know the exact dates?

An excellent recording and an excellent show. 5 stars all around.
Reviewer: Lamdingo - - February 6, 2006
Subject: Spectacular Show!
I often give away copies of this show to unenlightened friends and relatives, and it never disappoints. High & Lonesome is wonderful enough, but the Glad-->Twinstar is god-like.

This show is what the Archive is all about. Flawless sound, amazing band, kickin' set list, free of charge.

I got to see this band in late October and was blown away. IMO the best Kimock has sounded and the best supporting cast/sound. KVHW was terrific but this group simply astounds. Get it NOW!!
Reviewer: squirming coil - - October 26, 2005
Subject: damn
I'm really kicking myself for not seeing these guys the past summer after hearing this show. Kimock rips, and Robert Walter is great as always and adds a lot to this band. The drums and bass are also really good and keep the band tight but open. great show and great sound quality

This show is a treat, thanks for the post. Fantastic quality and a great show, for sure. Exciting new lineup and very high energy.

Reviewer: Bangkok Ajarn - - October 19, 2005
Subject: Who is Steve Kimock?
Ok, I know I come close to living on another planet, but honestly I have never heard Steve Kimock before listening to this show but I had heard of him. I downloaded this show to hear what all the fuss was about. For some reason, I had low expectations. But I was pleasantly surprised. Big grin! Good stuff, I doubt I will be about to see this band live anytime soon (Unless they are preparing a Southeast Asian tour) but I will surely download a few more shows to hear more of this.

Subject: Could someone please pick up my jaw?
First off, I must be honest. I'm still listening to this show right now- I've yet to finish. I think my jaw fell off somewhere during Glad > Twinstar, so watch your step. New lineup is amazing, fellas! Energy and emotion are right on point and the quality of the recording is about as good as it gets. Rest assured, this show will be getting heavy distribution among friends.
Reviewer: leland729 - - October 15, 2005
Subject: amazed
Wow! I've listened to this show a couple of times now, and all I can say is that I LOVE IT!!!

I've seen the last incarnation of SKB a handfull of times, and was always thoroughly impressed at the end of the night, but just listening to this show over the internet has me extremely excited about catching the new line up next weekend!
I haven't been this excited about a show in years... maybe longer!

Thanks to Steve and his crew for getting this matrix out for the masses. This will be the show I use to introduce my "less than enlightened" friends in the future.
Reviewer: JKDrummer - - October 14, 2005
Subject: WOW! Very nice
Never heard of Steve unitl I saw this as a LMA Staff pick! You guys have great taste. I listened to this and couldn't believe how well everything is level and balanced. Great job. And I was shocked to hear Robert Walters is in this line up - he's every where. This is also the first time I heard Rodney Holmes too -- he's a backbeat pocket God! That's drummer talk for He's Da Bomb. Great show.
Reviewer: virtual jam - - October 14, 2005
Subject: High & Lonesome
A superb blend of guitar, keyboard and rythm. Reminds me of Keybords of Booker T & MG's Melting Pot, Guitar of Mark Knofler & sometimes Latin Amarican blend of music in this number created by Carlos Santana. The sound is crisp, clear and recording is also great. Keep it up Steve Kimoc Bank.
Reviewer: direwolf0701 - - October 13, 2005
Subject: omfg
I will third the sentiment that this is one of the best High and Lonesome ever!!! - i'm still picking up pieces of my head from my desk after listening to that for the first time. Phenomenal doesn't even do it justice.
Sound quality is just about perfect. This new lineup has such a super sound - absolutely lovin it. Gotta go out and get me some tickets!!!
Thanks Charlie, you are the balls - Thanks Steve
Reviewer: tlp333 - - October 11, 2005
Subject: GREAT SHOW! GREAT RECORDING!
This show is really solid and I agree with most of the comments except for the dude who said that this was terrible and robert walter either needed to get in synch with steve or move on. well, that dude needs to move on or have his hearing checked because he doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. Whoever said this was the best High and Lonesome ever just may be correct. Killer stuff! Thanks for the freebie SBD Charlie. Support DigitalSoundboard.net people......really.
Reviewer: ETimm - - October 10, 2005
Subject: Wonderfully
relaxing, groovy, and thoroughly enjoyable!
Reviewer: freakshow sam - - October 10, 2005
Subject: Very good show
I agree with most this is a very good show. Very talented group. The thing I noticed is that the players are listening to each other and responding. This band will continue to get better as they continue to play together. I'm surprised to see no comments on the bass player. Reed is the best bass player I'd heard with SKB since Bobby Vega and this show provides the evidence. GO SKB!!!
Reviewer: hyperboy - - October 10, 2005
Subject: SMOKIN'!!!!!
Revised 10/10/05: Chinacat72, you are out of your mind. You obviously do NOT understand Kimock music. This is the most talented group of guys Steve has ever played with! KVHW and the early SKB are over and done with. Although KVHW was a MONSTER band! But your assessment of this show is so far off...at least IMO.

Damn...they are at it again! These four guys play better together than anyone out there right now. And this show is just smokin'!!! Being a Kimock freak, this show gets a 5 for both playing and sound quality.

This may be the best High & Lonesome I have ever heard. Steve's second solo during the jam part is f-ing amazing! I was supposed to be at this show but had to back out b/c my wife was too close to her due date with our second son. So I will be forever grateful for this recording. Thank you so much Charlie. Thank you archive. I LOVE this site!!!!!

Revised, 10/6/05:
Now that I have had time to listen to the entire show with close attention, I am going to make a bold statement: This may be my favorite SKB show to date...period! This is such a BOLD statement b/c none of my favorite SKB staples were played at this show. No Cole's>Tangled, Up To You, or Tongue 'n' Groove...but it does not matter. This IS my favorite version of the Funky Meter's hit "Cissy Strut." Damn, Robert rips this one apart. Eudemon is turning into a beautiful tune...some of Steve's best pedal steel playing on this one. And this version is HUGE! Glad is always nice...since they debuted it at the same venue back on 3/16/05, it has been a treat...such a tight groove. Twinstar is ....uhh, GORGEOUS! Bronx always seems to blow me away. Thing One has always been in my top 5 favorites...and this one is short, but very solid. I was hoping Steve was gonna give us one of his monster envelope filter-octave divider solos (like he did in the matinee opener at George's on 10/29/04)...he hints at it towards the end...but they slip back into the refrain section to end the tune up. Still magical. Then comes Cissy...incredible! Elmer's is not my favorite at all, but this one is solid and I seemed to be more patient with it. Kickin' Up Dust (Robert's tune?) is the funkiest tune on the setlist...and it just simply makes you want to boogie. Malichi...oh Malichi...what a f-ing brilliant tune...one of Steve's most crafted tunes since IU2U. This has moved into my top 5 over the last year and a half. And this Granada one is stellar. Such perfect tune.

This show will be a regular in my rotation for a long while! So if you like crystal clear guitar, "blow your mind away" drums, and funky bass and keys...do yourself a favor and get this show right now. IMO, SKB is on a different level than any band out there right now. I LOVE this band!!!!
Reviewer: DrRobert - - October 9, 2005
Subject: Best Kimock Band so far, good sound quality
I was really excited to see that Kimock got someone of the quality of Walter in the band. I love the SKB and Walter sounds like he is really pushing Kimock in a new direction. Excellent stuff. Best SKB lineup that I have heard. They may need a little time to grow together though.
Reviewer: chinacat72 - - October 9, 2005
Subject: anyone else having difficulty problems with d2t5 and d2t2?
i'm not able to d/l d2t5. my ftp program keeps waiting to retry d2t5 with no success yet. I am also getting a "lost sync" error code 0 in flac frontend when decompressing d2t2. wassup?

EDIT 10/9/05: Sorry to deviate from the iagkhb banter, but is anyone actually listening to this show instead of remembering what a heady time they had in Dallas? skb has gone from being in a rut to falling into a gutter. This show is an incoherent mess. It doesn't even sound like kimock and the keyboard player are playing the same song. The jams go nowhere because Walter and Kimock are barely in the same book, much less on the same page. Walter either needs to rehearse more or hit the road. I hope skb gets better b/c this new lineup sure is a step down from the last couple years of kimock's band.
Reviewer: johnny_so_hum - - October 8, 2005
Subject: New Favorite
I whole heartedly agree with all the other great reviews. I surf these reviews everyday So I will find the best music available and today I found another. This show will be one of my most played cd's.
I had a Santana Flashback during "The Bronx Experiment", anybody else?
Highly reccomend downloading!

steve burned the place down,there wasnt a jaw left that wasnt on the floor! and to add walters to the mix was great.couldnt hear the keys that great at the show however,but either way i give it 6 stars,yes i can do that.
Reviewer: BBkb - - October 8, 2005
Subject: This show is Tight!
I am a huge kimock fan, and haven't had the chance to see this band in 2 years! I love the new sound with keys, they sound fired up...this show is one of the sweetest sounds i've heard in a long time, download it!

Great recording, Charlie! Thanks for the freebie!

Amazing show!!
Reviewer: MHarberg - - October 7, 2005
Subject: Off The Charts
This was my first time to see Kimock. I had listened to the soundboard recording of his previous show at the Granada with this same lineup, that a friend had retrieved from the merch table of that show. I was right up front and center, resting my elbows on the stage all night. It was a REDICULOUS show from start to finish! Personal highlights include the Glad->Twin Star in the first set and Elmer's Revenge from the second set. During the setbreak, one of Steve's crew dudes came by and dropped 3 setlists on the stage right in front of us...I got Steve's (the one with the reminder to make a Katrina Fund anouncement at the end of the first set). All in all a great show...Rodney was superhuman (I'm pretty sure he has more than 2 arms)(also...if you can hear someone in the crowd shout out "Octopus!" at the end of Elmer's Revenge...that was me...sorry, we were right in front of the mics on the stage) ...Reed and Robert were great...Steve was Steve. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!
Reviewer: Jason King - - October 6, 2005
Subject: Happy B-Day Steve (10/5)
I just read all the reviews and noticed that nobody wished Steve a Happy Birthday, so I'm happy to be the first in this forum to say "Happy Birthday Steve!!"
Love the new band, keep it coming.
Reviewer: hornsby - - October 6, 2005
Subject: Does it get better?
I have always been a Kimock fan. I know the music, and love it. Recently I had not listened to as much Kimock as once did, but when I d/l this show, and begin to listen, I soon recalled why Kimock is my favorite musician today. The music is absoultely amazing, and with RW and RM playing, the band's sound is unique and fresh. The recording is among the best I've ever heard, and I've heard a lot of them. An easy 5 star rating. Please, d/l this show. You will not be dissapointed!
Reviewer: Roadawg - - October 6, 2005
Subject: quite a present
This SKB show is defenately been the highlight of this tour & IMHO they have been smokin' since Spring Tour fairly regularly. This show a kind treat, thanks to cmiller & the SKB. I was waiting for this show to pop up on dsbd.net & then boom it a freeSBD pops up here. Couldn't have worked out better. This is one that I wish I could have been at, oh if I still went to Texas. Anyways, I been hearing great things & this has gotten me that much more excited for 10.20Charlottesville,VA& 10.21 FallsChurch,VA.
I psyched now, it's official.
Thanks so much for this.

Reviewer: cire gerg - - October 5, 2005
Subject: Really nice
Oooookaayyy...... anyways...

Never listened to SKB before, and am glad this is the first show I downloaded. Firstly, the sound is impeccable, a really great recording with just enough audience coming through in just the right places.

Secondly, this is some of the nicest music I've listened to in a long time. It is just really pleasant and beautiful, and inspired at times. Steve Kimock is a very tasteful and talented guitarist, I don't know how else to put it. Love his tone. And of course Robert Walters and the other band mates play their parts just as well, with some really graceful interaction going on between everyone.

Personally, I thought Glad, Elmer's Revenge, and Malachi were highlights. This show is a real treat all around. Do yourself a favor and downaload it, grab a beer, and pop it in the stereo for a great listening experience.

free lyrics in the house!

its been one of those years as the struggling artist in me searches deep and wide for just some tranquility....much love and peace to all of my beautiful relatives and relations of life and peace...much wishes of great times and years to come....here's a poem for all of you. pass it on.

this moment
again mind asks yells hollers for air
clarity-sanity-a moment of
tranquility please
the pile of consciousness is too much
so much to feel

oh the neurons fire efficiently
i'm burning, steaming down a mountain
of mental neurotic ecstasy ahhh
that trancendental elemental feeling
setting my spirit free

this moment
oh please help me as my body
reaches that second of extremes
should i feel more than i used to be
dare i reach the emotional rainbow & set
the dashing glowing blissful peace junky colors free

oh the angel's dancing near
magenta jism flying in one ear out the
toe as it stops at every artery to wink and
tickle some energy color juicy
onto me ahh....

this moment
decades of centuries building
just so a pawn could feel
in this instant free
dare i swim in the majestic purple haze
pink wind dream of the endless beings

oh the matter of actions and excistence
within millions of spirits creating before
me, how the pool i swim in runs deep
full lovingly cool before even words where
born again as the moment dares
to set me free

in the moment when Dali's oxygen
becomes me
i scent the paint pain
color too rich for canvas
that you and i call reality

no....it cant be
that my mind
my spirit
even body cant co-excist

it cant be
possible to set
the notion of one power
free

i'm trapped in the endless
cycle of life love God
and beauty of the wheel

therefore
i feel like i fell
in that deep well
full of quick...sand
the hourglass of time
i call endless life

i feel like i cant tell
the difference beetwen
Chopin's vibrating piano string
i'm e flat or the best ever played c
in history

action
reaction
vibrating
hysteria
of
macrocosm

minimilizing my energy
into a puddle of samadhi
nirvana comes with the wind
gently nourishing blowind sand
polishing endlessly this giant
ferris wheel of co-creational life

it doesnt get any better than this
i think......it cant be anymore than this cosmic
spaceship of funky toe jam of the
eternal soul of wo-man-God-kind gently breathing
into the deep blue sky of mind

oh this moment
traps my eternal spirit as a sprocket
a wingnut a washer a buffer
of a color wheel driving
my endless soul love free

oh ahh this moment...this feeling thought
is how much i love and feel
all of you are even more
than the present
we are time
we are one
we are love
we are you
we are fire
we are me
we are every-thing
beautiful
everything thats here


.......love is eternal and so are you all... therfore my most respect admiration recognition and future honor goes out to everysingle pore and molecule you call your own

i love you, happy days and may your wildest dreams come true

ahhhh men
ahhhhh women
ahhhhhh love
ahhhhhhh you.

I dl this puppy just 2 hours after it had been posted, and i was blown away. Thank you Charlie, thank you SKB for the stellar matrix!!!!! I have to say that I also second the notion that this has the best high and lonesome ever. This is a must have for any Kimock fan. The recording has no flaws and sounds very clean and crisp.
Reviewer: mayto - - October 5, 2005
Subject: The NEW SKB is all right in my book.
Great show, interesting takes on older tunes and the new tunes rock. I really liked Mitch Stein (Moose will be missed), but I always had a thing for Kimock with a keyboardist. Pete Sears, Chip Rowland, Jim Kost, etc... added something that another guitarist just wasn't providing. Needless to say, Robert Walters is a great addition. Great recording as always from CM and the SKB. Listened to it once last night, once this morning and I am getting ready to hit play again. Looking forward to the Philly, NJ Halloween and NYC shows.

definitely has the rich sound of a SBD matrix, thanks !!

Fantastic sound through most of the recording. A few 15 minute spots where the lead guitar drops out. Excellent performance, these guys are clearly gaining momentum together as this show is completely tight. Thanks for posting!
